Pastor Flourish Peter Narrate How Sammie Okposo’s Died
However, Lead Pastor of the LOGIC Church, Flourish Peters, revealed the last moments of the 51-year-old who passed away on Friday.
“On Friday, I received a troubling call around 4.45am – a call I wish I never received. But it is what it is.
“It was Ozy Okposo (Sammie Okposo’s name) on the other side of the phone saying ‘Sammie, wake up in Jesus name’.
“So, contrary to what blogs reported, he did not slump and die.
“He sat on the chair watching TV, before sleeping. But never went back upstairs to sleep. From his sleep, he slept into glory.
“I went there and saw the body. I conducted CPR and hit him hard. But nobody sees Jesus and looks away. It becomes challenging when a believer crosses over to the other side.
“It is deeply painful for me. I feel hurt,” Peters said shortly before his sermon on Sunday.
